Aherusia - Nostos ~ An Answer (?)

I was never, much of a fan of Aherusia’s first couple of albums, considering them to be a neat, if not a little more artistic, version of Rotting Christ, a band I was never too big on, with the exception of a couple of albums, due to their poor English enunciation. This however totally changed around, when the former released their third album, “Prometheus”, an ambitious concept album, which decides to modernize and give its own interpretation to the Promethean myth.

The song is taken from the upcoming third album “Kitro”, to be out in September.

Tengger Cavalry - Ancient Call

China is a big place not only in the map and in numbers but also in values and culture. This country is slowly but steadily coming over to the EU & US and in the years to come it will be a part of our lives. So why not in metal music too?!
